This will be my 7th year staying in this fantastic holiday home nestling in the hills with great facilities. We enjoyed relaxing round the spacious pool area and the views from the terrace of the surrounding countryside were spectacular. There are lots of lovely walks or even bike rides if you are feeling energetic. There is a local bar within walking distance which serves great food and is run by very friendly people. If you fancy a trip in the car there are lots of places nearby to visit including great shops restaurants and beaches. There is something for everyone at Casa Quintinha. Looking forward to returning in 2014.

What a fantastic place to relax and unwind! Tucked away on the hillside, with the most incredible views, but still only a short distance away from local amenities and a 20 minute drive from Faro airport, Casa Quintinha is so peaceful, well-maintained and extremely comfortable, you can't help but fall in love with it! Due to the superb facilities and layout you are chilling out and relaxing by the beautiful pool within minutes of your arrival.
This is a lovely villa in a beautiful part of Portugal. If you want English bars and restaurants this is not for you; if you want to experience real Portuguese hospitality and natural beauty, it is. With a car you can explore local towns and villages and in under an hour even reach the Spanish border. The villa is extremely well appointed - a 'home from home' really. The kitchen has everything you need to cook and prepare meals and eating out on the terrace for lunch/dinner is wonderful. Even better, eat out at Paula's Bar - her prawns and baccalau (baked salted cod) are to die for! Comfy beds and a spacious lounge area all contributed to a great, chilled-out 'girly getaway'! I would definitely recommend Casa Quintinha for a wonderful relaxing holiday.

Casa Quintinha is a most unassuming villa from the road but when you descend the few steps round the side of the property you discover a beautiful pool and sun terrace. The view across the valley is picturesque and the beautiful smell from the orange blossom trees wafts as you stand and gaze.You also then see the rear of the property which reveals a sizeable ground floor with kitchen and patio doors into the dining room and lounge. Upon arrival the property was very clean and a supply of firewood ready, should the need arise. As the weather initially was overcast we did set and light the fire on some evenings and it made the lounge very cosy and a great place for us seven girls to chat and relax. The 3 bedrooms - located on different levels in the villa - were well appointed and everyone was most comfortable. I slept on the fold down settee and it was great! The villa has two bathrooms, one ensuite, but it was most helpful to have use of an additional bathroom at the poolside - ideal when seven were all trying to get ready to go out. No need to take towels as a plentiful supply available at the villa. Although a bit isolated from the bizz of a main town, the location is only 20 minutes drive from Faro airport and 15 minutes from Sao Brasch. Walking distance away from the villa is a super café/restaurant run by Paula and her family. Most welcoming and good food too. The locals meet there so it not the "touristy" Portugal often experienced in the coastal towns but much more friendly and relaxed. We had a great time playing darts (badly) and pool (some of us need a lot of help there!!!) and just chatting with everyone. Some ex pats and some locals who have some English. All very friendly.
You really need a car when you stay at this property if you want to be out and about and see the surroundings. There are some good restaurants nearby - just 5 minutes by car but a bit if a hike on foot. really enjoyed my stay and hope to return. A great "get away from it all" spot.

“Fabulous house fantastically equipped , great pool area, great location, only let down by the neighbours animals”

The house was even better than the pictures. All done to a very high standard, well equipped and the pool area is superb. Perfect location for exploring all of the Algarve. It was our first trip to Portugal and we loved the whole area. Great variety and plenty of quiet 'non touristy' bits to explore. Our teenagers (19,16 &14) really liked the area. The local cafe/bar is less than 10 minutes walk and was excellent with great food at really good prices.

The only downside was the barking dogs from the neighbours house; there are a lot of them and they started very early in the morning. It wasn't constant and really only isolated to the early morning but it wasn't welcome! It's also good if you're a cat lover as the same neighbours have quite a few of them as well that pop round to say hello!

A great house in a great location that is a credit to the owners. We had a great time.

This was our 3rd visit to this fabulous peaceful retreat - a perfect place to recharge the batteries. Superb location, fabulous rural views, great pool and so much to do in the area if you choose to mix with the hoi polloi in the busier beach areas or play tourist in the amusement parks. With a lovely friendly local bar nearby, you're always made to feel welcome and don't need to venture far afield to be well-fed. Comfy beds & wonderful pillows all help the rejuvenation process. We travelled with 2 young teenage girls, but have previously visited as a couple and Casa Quintinha fits the bill every time. We hope it's not too long before we're back!!
